Minneapolis-based singer, rapper, and writer Dessa has a busy November: Glasgow, London, Bristol…and Amery! Join us for a very special evening with Dessa at Farm Table’s gallery space. She will perform songs, read from her new memoir My Own Devices, take Q&A with the audience, and, of special note, have a conversation with her mother, Sylvia Burgos Toftness, who raises grass-fed beef at Bull Brook Keep in Amery, WI. Farm Table will serve local cheeses, meats, and veggies. This is a unique evening you won’t want to miss.
Background: Dessa’s musical résumé includes performances at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury, performances with the Minnesota Orchestra, and a top-200 entry on the Billboard charts for her album Parts of Speech. Dessa’s third full-length album, Chime, (Doomtree Records) was listed by NPR as one of 2018’s most anticipated albums. As a writer, she’s been published by The New York Times Magazine; her first hardcover collection, My Own Devices, has just been released. She’s been covered by Pitchfork, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal amongst others. On the stage and on the page, her style is defined by ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor.
